Through a selection of thematic topics ranging from the Neolithic period to the 19th century, the course History of Korean Art 1 [LT2490] deals with the pre-modern period. Students will be familiarized with the main issues in Korean art history by surveying the key episodes in the development of material and visual culture in the Korean peninsula.
Successful completion of the course will enable students to acquire a good understanding of Korean art, its main features and important artefacts and monuments, as well as specialized terminology. They will also be trained in research methods in art history such as bibliographical search, image sourcing, academic writing, copyrights, and in developing critical skills in the understanding and iconographic analysis of a work of art. Students will be introduced to the various correlated issues such as the legacy of the Japanese colonial period (1910-1945) in the interpretation of Korea’s past, the religious history of art and the social history of art.
